CFP: Literature and Photography Special Issue, September 17, 2012

Friday, August 24, 2012 - 10:05am
LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

How do you "see" literature? How do you "write" photography? In recent years, scholars have drawn a connection between the nineteenth-century realist novel and the rise of photography, suggesting that the novel genre is intrinsically photographic. This argument hinges, in part, on realism, or at the very least on reality effects. Nineteenth-century photography was indeed often used to document: to record landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, and crime scenes. Yet it was also from the start a creative technology, a mode of representation open to experimentation and artistic innovation. How does photography intersect with literature when the aims of one or both are not to represent reality?
